For the last couple of years Andrew Benson has been producing work that borders GIF animation and glitch aesthetic. Below is a short compilation of recent experiments he’s made to work out animation ideas or generative effects rototypes in Maya.
Created by Michael Frei, Mario von Rickenbachthe and the Zurich based Etter Studio, Plug & Play for iOS invites you to explore the feelings of anthropoid creatures that go beyond sexuality and reproduction: love.
Patterns of Harmony is an installation comprised of animated fractal of cubes, without containing any physical cubes, rather the reflections and projections of them.
In the recent months Mark Wheeler has been working on a series of visual sound experiments by creating openFrameworks apps that you can ‘play’ visually, generating animations from MIDI data….
Light Barrier by Kimchi and Chips creates phantoms of light in the air by crossing millions of calibrated beams, creating floating graphic objects which animate through space.
Weird Second-order Loops is a series of computer-generated animation loops that never repeat. Each of the loops is centred around a playful and simple cyclical idea that is a procedural reinterpretation of a long existing animation cliché, potentiating it ad infinitum.
Patatap is a portable animation and sound kit for iOS that allows you to play with versatile melodies charged with colourful geometric graphics.
Created by Andreas Gysin in collaboration with Sidi Vanetti, Fari is a kinetic installation created with an array of moving light heads in a geometric configuration and programmed as a choreography.
Created by Lafkon, etcpp is an animation created using Processing and a Pen Plotter where animation frames are drawn into various granular matter.
“The motion triptych shows an interpretation of what the initial concepts would have looked liked if they were not realised as a line of runway clothes but spontaneously realized themselves as autonomous life forms.”
Back in 2012 Nicolas Ménard created a project at the intersection between graphic design and visual arts. The original idea was to design a book on the topic of colour, with a random process that generated abstract forms.
Anitype speaks in code and provides a letter and a sandboxed environment for anyone to tinker and animate characters from the roman alphabet.
